Say What? Joe Biden – 400 People a Day Losing Their Jobs in Louisiana

Slow Joe Biden at his best

Say it ain’t so, Joe. Because you are wrong to the point of another GAFFE.

Giving the republican response to President Obama’s speech Tuesday night, Governor Bobby Jindal pointed out fundamental differences in how republicans and democrats see the economy.

“But what I don’t understand from Governor Jindal is what would he do?,” asks Joe Biden while on the Early Show.
That rhetorical question to Governor Jindal on the Early Show, was followed with this.

“in Louisiana there’s 400 people a day losing their jobs, what’s he doing?” asks Biden.

But that claim is wrong, if you look at the numbers from the Louisiana Workforce Commission.

“In December, Louisiana was the only state in the nation besides the District of Columbia, according to the national press release that added employment over the month,” says Patty Granier with the Louisiana Workforce Commission. According to her, not only is Louisiana not losing jobs. “The state gained 3,700 jobs for the seasonally adjusted employment,” Granier said of the most recent figures.

You don’t even have to take my word for it, these are number you can check out yourself if you just go to, there you can find the latest unemployment statistics, statistics that appear to directly contradict what the vice president said this morning.

The GAFFE MACHINE that keeps on giving.

    If not for the unemployment statistics, I would have readily believed what was said by the vice president. Though he was wrong, in current circumstances, many people would have assumed this was actually the case.

    I don’t think he was being literal. It’s, like, you know, Louisiana is losing a gazzilion jobs… Only problem is that the VP can’t just go around throwing figures like this. And if Louisiana isn’tlosing jobs at all, as you say, then Biden is in big trouble.
